You have to love a story like this. It seems a struggling creationist museum near Lubbock, Texas is strapped for cash in spite of its ideal location in God’s country, and is being forced to auction off its prize mastodon skull. The story from AP makes it sound like mastodons were dinosaurs.Â Tut, tut.Â Mastodons were mammals contemporary with early man. Imagine: Barney Rubble and Fred Flintstone might’ve ridden astride this very beast!
Maybe all the sf writers who’ve gotten so much mileage out of the prehistoric over the years might pony up some cash to help save one of God’s roadside attractions. What do you say, Swanwick?
